Fall Color at Stevens Pass and Tumwater Canyon

Earlier this week we took a little road trip to Wenatchee to celebrate our 39th Anniversary. Yes, it’s been a wonderful THIRTY-NINE YEARS, a funny number that begs to usher in FORTY! We went via Highway 2 to see some of the best fall… Continue Reading “Fall Color at Stevens Pass and Tumwater Canyon”

The Salmon are Running and it’s Beautiful to Behold!

One of my favorite things about living in Renton is seeing the salmon return to the Cedar River each fall. After spending several years in the Pacific Ocean they return to the rivers and streams of their birth to spawn. Coho, Chinook and Sockeye… Continue Reading “The Salmon are Running and it’s Beautiful to Behold!”

Hurricane Ridge – A look at the Olympic Mountains

I’ve showed you many pictures from our various travels in Olympic National Park – the forests – the lakes and the rugged beaches – all are wonderful. But I haven’t showed you much of Hurricane Ridge even though it’s probably the most visited place… Continue Reading “Hurricane Ridge – A look at the Olympic Mountains”

Afternoon Photoshoot with the Hummingbirds

I must have let the feeders run dry. I saw the hummers land first on one, then the other before flying away. Sorry about that boys. I ran into the house to make the sugar water and cooled it quickly in the freezer. I… Continue Reading “Afternoon Photoshoot with the Hummingbirds”

I heard the birds in the trees overhead and pulled up a chair to watch. Benji joined me on my lap. An Anna’s Hummingbird perched high above – perhaps he watched me too. I moved to the shed to hide from view and Benji… Continue Reading “Watching the Hummingbirds with Benji”

Bugs – It’s What’s for Lunch at the Wren’s House!

I had other plans today but was tired and decided to do some backyard birding instead. I could hear the wrens chatter so I pulled up a chair and positioned myself for a good look at the birdhouses on the garden shed. It wasn’t… Continue Reading “Bugs – It’s What’s for Lunch at the Wren’s House!”

After the Rain

After last week’s heat wave, Juneuary returned to the Pacific Northwest bringing cold, wet, windy, winterlike weather. But after a few days of torrential rainfall, the sun reappeared yesterday along with some magnificent clouds. The air has been washed fresh and clean, new plants… Continue Reading “After the Rain”

Inspired by the Heavens!

Thanks to Terri Webster Schrandt for inspiring me once again with her photo challenge. This week the theme is Celestial and it sent me to my archives to find some of my favorite pictures of the heavens! I’ll start at the beginning with sunrise.… Continue Reading “Inspired by the Heavens!”

Nesting Birds in the Garden

Our little garden shed has become quite the bird condo with wrens in particular nesting in the birdhouses my husband built. I wasn’t sure they’d be happy so close to their neighbors but it hasn’t deterred them. Every morning they’re out and about gathering… Continue Reading “Nesting Birds in the Garden”
